More information on this Morris:
And again to my favourite scrapyard of all time - Statham Enterprises near Lymm in Cheshire. I bet the people who now own the modern homes on this former scrapyard are unaware of the fabulous old cars that were scrapped there. I took this photo in 1993 when looking for a back window for my SAAB 95 van. In view is a 95 estate and nearer to us a 1950s Morris Oxford. None of this classic iron exists today.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Morris above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Oxford would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Morris Oxford, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Oxford, and similar old Morriss, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
